Nathan H. Manning for Ohio Senate 13th District (Lorain and Huron counties): endorsement editorial
Republican state Rep. Nathan H. Manning’s bid for the Ohio Senate District 13 seat now held by his mother, Gayle L. Manning, raises two caution flags.
First is the family dynasty: Gayle Manning is term-limited in the Senate district that covers Lorain and Huron counties, but the younger Manning could seek another two terms in his Ohio House 55th District. Nevertheless, Gayle L. Manning and Nathan H. Manning are trying to swap seats this election.
Second is the London trip. Last year, Nathan Manning accepted an invitation from then-House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger to join him on a four-day trip to London sponsored by the GOPAC Education Fund’s Institute for Leadership Development. When Rosenberger resigned last April in the middle of an FBI investigation since revealed to be probing possible bribery and extortion, it also came out that payday-lending and other lobbyists were on the trip. Manning says he did not know lobbyists would be there, and in any case, was not lobbied.
The term-limit musical chairs is distasteful but has to be weighed against whether Manning delivers for constituents. And while the London trip reveals, at best, poor judgment and naivete on Manning’s part to an extent that’s head-scratching in a lawyer and two-term legislator, we cannot infer more based on the record at this juncture.
Manning, 36, of North Ridgeville, who chairs the Ohio House Criminal Justice Committee, is articulate and well-versed on issues, and was instrumental in enactment earlier this year of bipartisan legislation modernizing Ohio’s domestic violence laws to protect people in abusive dating relationships.
He is opposed by Democrat Sharon Sweda, 65, of Amherst, a Realtor seeking her first political office, and Libertarian Homer S. Taft, 73, of Vermilion, a lawyer. Both are accomplished in their fields but neither made a compelling case that Manning should not advance to the state Senate. Male dating in wadsworth.
